Injury News: Cech out for a month

New, comments

News that we have all been dreading to hear...

Petr Cech has been ruled out for three to four weeks with a medial knee ligament injury suffered in training on Wednesday. Cue the "we're dooooooooomed!" shrieks from the Chelsea fans. But also keep in mind that Hilario did do pretty well in preseason - if that makes you feel any better, which it probably will not.

That means Hilario or Turnbull could be in goal against a pretty freescoring Manchester United side in a few weeks. I remember a couple years ago against Liverpool when Cech was out with suspension and Hilario needed to step up and perform and he absolutely did. We'll be hoping he can do the same again now.

I am sure everyone is with me in wishing Big Pete a very, very, VERY speedy recovery.
